April 2014 Ipsy Glambag Unboxing!

I got that pretty pink package yesterday!
 
I created a little video to show you what all came in my April Ipsy Glambag collection.
I swatched things, smelled things, tried things, commented on things...
You get the idea.
 
If you aren't a subscriber to my YouTube channel, I encourage you to become one. I don't typically link my unboxing videos to my blog, so you being subscribed will keep you from missing out on seeing what Birchbox, Ipsy & Glossybox are sending out.
 
Also, if you're interested in subscribing to Ipsy Glambag, you'll notice I have a very handy link to the right of my blog. I'll get credit for referring you, so I really appreciate it!
 
Do you like watching unboxings? I was surprised by how many people love them. I guess we sometimes live vicariously through others? Or maybe we're just curious to see what we might get if we decide to subscribe?

Low Carb, Gluten Free Chicken Nuggets Recipe Your Kids Will Love!

While all my family likes chicken nuggets, my 6 year old daughter LOVES them.
Intensely.
And while I do occasionally buy her the highly processed junk from the local fast food joint, I really prefer to serve her some that I've made myself...and that I can eat as well.
 
So, here's my recipe for Low Carb Chicken Nuggets.
And I hope that you and yours will like them as much as me and mine do!

Amazing Concealer Reviewed on Eyes & Flaws

When I was in South Florida a little under 2 years ago, I developed a deep, dark tan & found myself needing a much darker shade of concealer. I found the nearest Ulta and went to find a shade that would match my new hue.
Having no clue what to buy, because I'd never been that tan in my life, I had to go with a prestige brand, because those you get to try out in the store.
